Bruce Lee is most well known for his captivating on-screen performances complete with chilling animal sounds, flying kicks, and, of course, the famed nunchaku.

Although today’s generations are getting exposure to the Bruce Lee legacy through new TV documentary’s, video games, and MMA, there is a side of the legendary Martial Artist that deserves attention — Jeet Kune Do.

Jeet Kune Do, in many ways embodies the exact opposite of what we see in Lee’s movie action sequences.  Its simple, direct, and no-nonsense approach to combat don’t lend themselves to the flashy movements that moviegoers expect.

Yet, when examined closely one can see that Bruce Lee does, in fact take care to showcase much of his Jeet Kune Do methodology.  Perhaps the movies containing the most representative Jeet Kune Do sequences are Return of the Dragon and his Hollywood hit, Enter the Dragon.

Some of the techniques we see include his modified trapping, stop hits and stop kicks, elusive footwork, deceptive entries, broken rhythm, half beat timing, and tons more.

Grateful for having the martial arts inspiration from Bruce Lee and for having the opportunity of meeting his family!

It’s important to know how to separate the entertainment based theatrics from the real deal but it’s good to know that much of his JKD is carefully embedded within his movie combat sequences.

The enthusiast looking to start martial arts training and use some of that signature Bruce Lee inspiration, would benefit greatly by searching out a qualified Jeet Kune Do Instructor or a reputable school.

Yesterday, December 3rd, was the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at the prestigious Jonathan Club.  I had the honor of performing with the Citrus Women’s Ensemble at their beautiful beach location.  We offered an exquisite selection of classic Christmas Carols with elegant and diverse arrangements directed by Mrs. Keelly Milliken.

Photos taken today Nov 14th 2009 at the Bruce Lee Foundation JKD Summit.  The event took place at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City, CA.  Bruce Lee followers and Jeet Kune Do practitioners came from all around the World, including places such as Italy, Germany, and Netherlands.

The BLF (Bruce Lee Foundation) presented the first of a series of books containing Bruce Lee’s original manuscripts.  With the process of de-acidification the papper is now assured to last intact for hundreds of years!

Comparing with last year’s Summit at Seattle, this time it was a much more intimate experience.  Closer to a Jeet Kune Do family.  Shannon Lee and the BLF invited the attendants to get into smaller groups with people we didn’t know, and this way interact and debate the different ideas regarding the future of Jeet Kune Do and the Bruce Lee Foundation.  Each group wrote its ideas in big paper sheets and then speak them out for all the attendants to hear.  After that Shannon posted the sheets in the wall as you can see in the picture above.

Most of the groups agreed about the need to educate the newer generations and continue promotion of  the Bruce Lee Legacy on a global scale.  As always a main theme was to define and preserve the original Bruce Lee teachings and at the same time respect the evolution of this living Martial Art.  As Shannon mentioned, Bruce Lee would express that once you put it in a box and say “This is Jeet Kune Do” it won’t be a living art anymore.

The American Idol auditions took place this week. Using the headline “Don’t Sit Idol, Be a Hollywood Star” the Hollywood Star team took to the streets, giving the Talent who didn’t pass the American Idol audition a second chance — an opportunity to be heard and seen in the Hollywood Star international competition!

Tonight was a very special night! I had the great experience of attending the Jeet Kune Do Wednesday Night Group, and directly learning from first generation students of Bruce Lee. It was an honor to train under Tim Tackett and Dennis Blue direction. I also enjoyed a great time after, conversing with Tim Tackett, Bob Bremer, and Jim Sewell in a cordial gathering. I felt like I was inside of a legendary movie!!!!

Victoria Vives with Tim Tackett

My favorite drill in the training was one from Tai Chi, where I had to push my opponent with the momentum created by my bodyweight. I started visualizing myself channeling all the energy around and then throwing it through my palm to push my drill partner. It worked! I felt like a video game character! AMAZING!!!! Love it!!!! Looking forward for more 🙂

I love how they are open to exploring other systems in order to continue enriching their understanding of the martial way.
